i've just got some cheap lowering spring, ventura's i think.

the ride quality isn't that bad but its greatly reduced if you're used to driving stock suspension and wheels/tyres.

i suppose its like driving a normal car like a ford or something, but the look of the car is second to none.

u from wales?

Hey I'm riding 19 by 8 with 40 series tires in the front and 19 by 9.5 with 40 series tires, how the hell do you lower your car 15mm were? Do you buy springs or get the oem springs cut. How does the ride seem after this drop. My car was rubbing in the back until I rolled the lip in the quarter panel. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. The rear of my car looks nice, but the front is a tad bit high for my taste.

Your car looks very nice as is! I love those wheels.
Dropping it by the use of shorter and stiffer springs will probable require rolling the fenders, but this depends on your wheel offset. Check wheel offset our on google if you like.
Here is a little test I made up: Put weight on the front and rear of the car to compress the springs the amount you want them lowered. Now see if the fenders are touching the front/rear tires. Also keep in mind that the suspension will need to compres beyond that point. It's pretty tight under there!

Think I'll just leave the ride height alone, change the front bumper to a M3 so it appears lower. Thanks for the compliments.

Take it to a shop that has a fender roller or rent a fender roller. Most shops will charge you $50 USD per fender to roll them. I found a shop that was very reputable and they did mine for $25 a fender (USD).
